Dane DeHaan On Harry Osborn In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

Actor Dane DeHaan talks portraying Harry Osborn in Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man sequel. Plus, a rumor concerning Sony, Josh Trank, Venom and expanding the Spider-Man universe.

Actor Dane DeHaan is currently doing promo interviews for The Place Beyond The Pines but naturally, he's fielding a number of questions about The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Below, he talks about how he's already had a number of roles that dealt with different father-son dynamics, avoids any comparison to James Franco and talks about his love for comic book movies. And stick around for a rumor about DeHaan and Sony's plans for Venom.

DeHaan comments on the frequency of his roles dealing with various takes on the father-son dynamic.

"First of all, 'Chronicle' was about a kid with an abusive fathe. 'Place Beyond the Pines' is about a kid who doesn't know who his father is, and they're very different relationships. Obviously with Harry Osborn, the privilege of it is another dynamic. The relationship Harry has with Norman is a different dynamic. Every son has a relationship with their father, whether that father is there or not, and that always has an effect on the person whether they admit it or not. There's a lot of different ways those relationships are complicated."

Dane is hesitant to touch on anything James Franco and Sam Raimi did with Harry Osborn in the original trilogy.

"I dunno, I mean Franco did his thing, I'll do my thing."

The actor admits that he was never much of a comic book fan growing up. However is a huge fan of the comic book movie genre.

"I don't think you have to be a fan of something to do the job. I think ultimately it's important that I'm familiar with past takes on the Osborn story, more for like common, know-it-all 'cause it's stuff I should know. My job as an actor is the same job, whether it’s a comic book movie or a gritty Derek Cianfrance drama, or a 'Chronicle,' or a 'Lawless,' which is to take a character and, for lack of better word, to breathe life into it. I'm a fan of acting!.... I don't read comic books, but I love the last Batman franchise, Sam Raimi's second 'Spider-Man' was pretty sick. The first 'Iron Man' was really great, I couldn't wait for 'Captain America' to come out. Those are my guilty pleasures for sure."

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Harry Osborn Dane DeHaan

Rumor time. An anonymous source has told be that earlier rumblings concerning Dane DeHaan are true, the actor does indeed factor into Sony's plans for Venom. DeHaan getting the role of Harry Osborn in Marc Webb's Spider-Man was actually Sony's decision (remember those additional actors testing for the role after Dane DeHaan?). The studio wants DeHaan and director Josh Trank to recapture some of their Chronicle magic in a Venom spinoff. To pave the way for that to happen and avoid confusion among comic book fans, Chris Zylka, Flash Thompson in the first Amazing Spider-Man will not be returning in the sequel. The seeds for Venom will be first planted in the sequel as Peter Parker will find the experimental serum that his father and Eddie Brock Sr. developed which is exactly how it plays out in the pages of Ultimate Spider-Man. However, unlike that story, it will be Harry Osborn who eventually becomes Venom and will eventually get a solo spinoff. DeHaan's not working out so fanatically and increasing his bulk for nothing! Look for Eddie Brock Jr. to show up in THAT film, not The Amazing Spider-Man sequel. Also, Venom is not the only character currently being looked at for a solo spinoff as Sony is looking to build their own cinematic universe around Spider-Man. Keep all this in the rumor bin for now but it all sounds plausible as a potential secondary plot to the main conflict between Peter, Electro, Rhino and whoever else has grievances with Spidey.
